I'll get some nice pics over the next few days, I only had time to drive it home from the dealer, park it, and go out for our 7 year anniversary. I.LOVE.IT.

I was very scared about the brown interior because a lot of online pics make it looks orange. It's not at all, and is exactly what I had hoped for. So, only drove it for an hour, but will give feedback and post better pics over time.

The brown interior looks amazing! Congratulations!
Do you plan to get some clear protection on it and ride it around some fun curves?

Went and got a quote for xpel, pretty $$ stuff. I think the whole the car was $4500. Thinking about just the front/hood. Do you have any experience/recommendations?

Hmmm not experience but I have seen a lot of people only cover the hood and bumper as those areas are prone to scratches. Maybe even the front fenders too.

Fenders are a must since the hood and bumper is right there so naturally some rocks would flow right over to the fender. Only thing is you might not need to cover the whole fender, no harm in wrapping more than you absolutely need to.

You can order the xpel protection film online via their site and then bring it into a shop for installation. A lot cheaper IMO.

fuel consuption

Congrats on the great choice mate !
I have a question i have ordered the same one , and waiting a delivery in January , but the thing that concerns me the most is the fuel consuption , as you know it has nothing to do with the official estimated ... Can you tell me what MPG you get on yours , when you push it and when you drive normally .. Thanks in advance !

Still loving it, and I'm racking up the miles. I have about 2400 right now.

In normal comfort mode, there's nothing sporty about it, and it feels like your driving a big suv. A nice quiet, smooth SUV, but not sporty at all. It's good when the kids are asleep, and we're on a longer trip, but other than that, I always find my self in sport+. Sport+ is where you get the lower suspension, stiffer steering, different throttle response, and throaty exhaust.


The 360 deg camera and self parallel parking, 2 things I didnt think I'd care for or want, are totally awesome and I find myself using them quite often. I honestly haven't paid much attention to the gas mileage, because im always in sport+ having fun.

Just had the wheels done in gloss black....I'll throw up a thread now.
